The Paseo Academy is a key project in Kansas City, Missouri School District's Capital Improvements Program.  This four story high school facility was designed as part of a three building complex on a 20 acre site.  The steep topography and limited access required analytical planning to locate the buildings, playing fields and parking lots advantageously.  The image of the original school on this site was repeated in the placement of the entrance on the same axis.  The site was reforested with indigenous species for maintenance, aesthetic, and environmental purposes.  FAI provided site design including grading, landscaping and detailing from preliminaries through construction documents.
